For 130 years now, the rack railway has been running along a picturesque nine-kilometre stretch of mountain scenery in the Monte Generoso nature park, from Capolago on Lake Lugano to the Monte Generoso summit at 1,704 m altitude.

The steam train built in 1890 (the oldest still and regulary in use in Switzerland today) and the trains dating back to the 1950s take passengers back in time to the Belle Époque era.
